Bibliophile

Hollow CityMy latest read was the second book in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, by Ransom Riggs.  This was a captivating addition to the series, and it left me wanting more.  This book takes these magical & peculiar children on a hunt across war torn England, to save their headmistress Miss Peregrine.  Along the way they meet sympathizers, and those who wish to destroy these lovable peculiar children.   Here are two trailers for Hollow City.

The book is captivating, fantastical, and quite suspenseful. It will have young readers absolutely hooked!  Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long, for another book from this very talented author.  Speaking of author, here is a brief interview from GoodReads.

He is so charming!  Fun fact of the day, he and his wife had their wedding reception at my favorite bookstore in Los Angeles; The Last Bookstore.  If you are ever in Downtown LA, stop by you will not be disappointed.

Two days ago a Facebook friend posted a voicemail she recieved from Downey Unified School District in Downey, CA.   The message is brief, but very impactful.

Today, that same friend found this outside her home in Paramount, California.
